Blurb: The past few years have been a bit chaotic for Cougars new associate coach, Lancaster Hart. After an amiable divorce he began living his life as the gay man he’d kept closeted for far too long. With the recent move to Cayuga, he’s away from his support system and properly made sweet tea. Despite a roster filled with new friends and associates, he’s spending his nights alone.

As his team gears up to make a run at the Calder Cup, Lancaster discovers that not everything in upstate New York is wine, woodlands, and chilly conservative ideals. At a summer music festival, he first lays eyes on Townsend Harris, folksy/blues singer by night and mayoral office assistant by day. Lancaster is enraptured with the man’s powerful sultry voice. Also, Town just might be the most beautiful man he has seen in all his forty-one years.

The two hit it off at an informal meet and greet after the show, where they spend the night talking and sipping wine. One evening of conversation and an incendiary goodbye kiss leads them into a scorching love affair that might be exactly what Lancaster has been searching for his whole life. Can his team pull off professionally what he’s hoping to do privately as well? Or will capturing their dream evade both the Cougars and Lancaster?

Review: One on One is the fifth and final book in VL Locey’s series Cayuga Cougars, I love a good MM hockey romance and I particularly love Locey’s own brand of style when it comes to romance between these awesome alpha male athletes she creates. I don’t want to go too much into things, because this was awesome end to a completely wonderful and somewhat surprising series for me. Surprising in the way that I had never thought to completely love the series, as well as a certain character (cough Vic you lovable, unlovable rogue).

This series has had a roller coaster of emotions, particularly when it comes to the characters Dan and Vic who we met at the start. And while we do get to check in on them and their little family again (and there will be more books around these guys separate to the series), I really loved the sweet romance as we were introduced to Townsend and Lancaster. While you can probably get away with not reading the entire series, I think it’s an injustice to you as the reader as well as to the author to not appreciate the full scope of the characters. All characters, including the newest couple, are really well fleshed out and were very relatable.

One on One is a very sweet, low key and low drama romance that shows two ordinary guys find their own happily ever after. Lancaster Hart is the new associate coach for the Cayuga Cougars ice hockey team and moving to the new team is just the start of things. He’s newly out of the closet and being divorced means he can finally live as the real version of himself. He is still friends with his ex-wife as well as her partner, which is totally nice, I’m over the usual trope of a vengeful ex who hates the fact her ex is gay and becomes some sort of harpy. Lancaster is down to earth and I felt an instant connection to his character, I wanted him to find the man of his dreams from the get-go.

A chance meeting after a concert with Townsend Harris, folk musician by night and mayoral assistant by day, sets the scene as we begin to explore Lancaster’s journey to be the man that he is. In a way, this is gently guiding us to not only get to know Townsend, but to realize that Townsend is the man that Lancaster needs in his life and in his bed. They don’t just fall into bed and then into love in the space of two minutes, instead they get to know each other.

The story is told completely from Lancaster’s POV, but I don’t feel that I lost anything in terms of getting to know Townsend. I keep using the word gentle to describe this story, but it truly is. A beautifully sweet and gentle romance that just happens to be set with some fast pace hockey and wonderful secondary characters we’ve known all along for the most part.

Blurb: Sander March is one season away from the pros, or so everyone tells him.

If only Sander had as much faith in his ability as the Cougar coaching staff does. Outwardly, he’s cocksure, borderline bitter, and slightly sarcastic. All that strut and sass hides a wounded soul though. Working to hide a brutal past filled with humiliation, abuse, and a family member who still haunts him, Sander has never found the kind of comfort and understanding he so desperately needs. Until he meets Mateo Castillo, a minor league baseball player for the nearby Elmira Egrets. Mateo and Sander click instantly, and a budding friendship develops between the two athletes.

Mateo then introduces Sander to his boyfriend, Noah Coombs, an aspiring manga comic creator. The three men find themselves bonding strongly, and that slowly gives way to sexual attraction. Eventually, Mateo and Noah invite Sander into their relationship. The path to happiness isn’t going to be easy for Sander as he faces criticism from his friends, teammates, and the press for his choices. The brash young star can handle all that, it’s when his abuser shows up in Cayuga that Sander fears not only for his own safety, but for the lives of the two men he has grown to love. Will Sander’s past tear him away from Mateo and Noah, or will he be able to leave the darkness behind?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Sanders has had quite a harsh life growing up. His mother had od when he was around four years old, and his sister’s husband was an abusive asshat. The man had hurt both his wife and Sander’s since he was six years old. The man went to jail but was coming up to parole time. It pretty much sent Sanders into panic mode. He was having a difficult time with it, but the two men he had fallen in love with helped.

Noah had been attacked and brutually raped some time ago, and he knew all about panic situations. He had had Mateo to help him through each time. He was a shy young man but his heart was always a bit scared. When Sander’s came over to play games, he was attracted to him and he knew Mateo was as well.

Mateo was pretty much the glue that held them all together. Sander’s was getting pretty far ahead in his hockey career and Noah was making a name for himself with his art. The problem was baseball was not as progressive as they should be. Thing in their lives are going to change.

This is a very slow moving story that comes off a bit dry to me. It was harder to connect with the characters then it should have been. I just could not get into this story and that was more than likely mine. You get quite a bit of Sanders and Noah, but Mateo not so much. It was like he was just a add in, even though he had been with Noah longer. Then there was Sander’s relationship with Vic that made Vic the asshat, which he really wasn’t.

It has some hot and sexy times in it, and the support that they give each other rocked. Although it comes off a bit harsh in parts. I have always been a fan of m/m romance but not so much with menage’s. They never seem to flow with ease, but in this story it actually made it more believable.

The story has a darker tone to it that doesn’t really call to me, but it also made the story more believable. It was like you knew who the guys were and they come off more real. There is heartbreak, pain, guilt, abuse, love, and friendship in this story and more.

Overall this story was well told and gives you something that felt real to the readers. The problem was that it was just not my type of story and I will admit that I skimmed over quite a bit of the story. It just wasn’t my kind of book and there was no real pull to it that called to me.

When it’s revealed that this new player and Dan have history, tensions begin to rise between the newlyweds. As Victor and Dan work on those issues, the one person Victor never thought he would meet arrives in the small New York hamlet and proceeds to flip everything in Vic’s life upside down.

Can Victor and Dan’s marriage withstand what life is about to drop on it, or will the challenges be too much for them to handle?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Cayuga Cougars collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Vic and Dan have been married for over a year now. Their son was as cute as pie, and his mother is a sweetie. Things always change and sometimes they might actually be good. Vic is an asshat sometimes though, but you can see why. His father left him with his abusive and drunk of a mother. He was angry as hell sometimes and pretty much a dick. He loved his family though.

Now things are getting shook up. Daddy dearest is back in the picture, wanting to make amends. Dan’s ex is now on the team, and jealousy is stacking up pretty hard. Things are never just happy and sweet, no, this story does that plus pissed off, violent tendencies, sulky and well you get the picture. It is actually like a real life home I guess.

I don’t much care for sports so that did nothing for me, and I just couldn’t connect with the story at all. I liked how this author throws in different parts to a story that many don’t. Such as Sal with HIV and Vic’s abusive past. It is a pretty good story but I can’t say it did anything for me. It was just long winded and a bit boring for me, but those are my issues with it. I did enjoy the book to a point and would recommend it.

Blurb: August Miles has the world on a string professionally.

Augie, as his friends and teammates call the unassuming young goaltender, is on the fast track to the pros. The starting goalie for the Cayuga Cougars, he has a year or two in Cayuga to hone his skills and all his career dreams will have come true. Pity his personal life isn’t riding the same high. He’s the only one among his group of friends without that special someone to call his own.

Until he meets Salvatore Castenada at a lakeside party. The attraction is white-hot and more than a little wonderfully overwhelming for the romantically inexperienced goalie. August quickly discovers that Sal is everything he’s dreamed of in a man: mature, settled, sinfully handsome, and filled with gentle humor. Sal is also HIV positive.

Will Sal’s revelation about his status end this budding relationship before it can even begin? Or will the two men be able to handle the challenges life—and a championship run for the Cougars—throws at them?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Cayuga Cougars collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. Although I did not read book one and won’t read it, it will give you some insight into the characters. My problem with it was the fact that it was m/f, and it was almost the reason I did not want to read this. I have issues with mixing m/f, f/f, and m/m.

This is the first book by this author that I have read and was surprised to say the least. You have two sexy men who are into each other, mixture of pretty cool friends, and then it goes into something deeper.

Augie is a pretty damn good goalie for his hockey team. He has a heart of gold, but he has been keeping a secret from them all. That is until he meets Sal, and the doors are wide open now. He finds that he is quite attracted to the older man and when he finds out Sal’s secret he goes out of his way to learn all he could about HIV. That is not going to change his mind though, he wants him.

Sal works for the local hospital for some time and enjoys it. On his twenty-first birthday he went out and partied hard. Went home with a sexy man and found out afterwards that he was now HIV positive. Guys don’t want to date him because of it, so when he meets Augie he is wishing for him now.

It will also show you who is your true friend and who are not. They both have amazing parents as well as their friends. It is a sweet story and I found that I enjoyed reading it. I will admit that it was a bit boring in some parts or long-winded I should say. It didn’t keep my attention like it should have but I still had fun with it. The author definitely did her work on getting to understand HIV and what it is like to live with it. It was written pretty well and had some good parts that I really got into. There were also some missing parts that I felt should have been there with the disease as well. I did not like how Augie was when he took Sal home to meet his parents though.

Other than my issues with it, the story is pretty upbeat and enjoyable. I can see myself reading the next book. I can’t say that I would read it more than once though, it was just not my kind of book. I am not really all that interested in books that have sports involved in them. But it is a very good story that one would enjoy.

When it’s revealed that this new player and Dan have history, tensions begin to rise between the newlyweds. As Victor and Dan work on those issues, the one person Victor never thought he would meet arrives in the small New York hamlet and proceeds to flip everything in Vic’s life upside down.

August Miles has the world on a string professionally.

Augie, as his friends and teammates call the unassuming young goaltender, is on the fast track to the pros. The starting goalie for the Cayuga Cougars, he has a year or two in Cayuga to hone his skills and all his career dreams will have come true. Pity his personal life isn’t riding the same high. He’s the only one among his group of friends without that special someone to call his own.

Until he meets Salvatore Castenada at a lakeside party. The attraction is white-hot and more than a little wonderfully overwhelming for the romantically inexperienced goalie. August quickly discovers that Sal is everything he’s dreamed of in a man: mature, settled, sinfully handsome, and filled with gentle humor. Sal is also HIV positive.

Will Sal’s revelation about his status end this budding relationship before it can even begin? Or will the two men be able to handle the challenges life—and a championship run for the Cougars—throws at them?

Mario McGarrity has been around the block – and rink – more than a few times. 

He’s creeping up on retirement age, has some dings and dents, and says what’s on his mind. Not exactly what most would consider a luxury ride, but his beautiful Lila – the transgender woman who stole his heart – loves him like no other woman ever has despite a little rust here and there. 

Everything is good – no, great – aside from the distance issue, until a surprise from Lila’s past crops up and moves in with her. Can Mario be the family man that Lila needs, or is this one game the old vet is unable to skate in?
